Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Poll on Psychs - 2
Not a psyche unless done intentionally. That doesn't count.
Combined Bergen Raises
We play that 3 of other major, 4, 4 are all splinters, and define these as having a maximum of three controls (A=2, K=1). Strongr hands bid Jacoby 2NT. We play that 3NT is a balanced 12-14 with exactly 2 card support for partner's major ...
The Death of 4-Session KO's
In NYC, we haven't had 2 day knockouts at our Regionals in ~ 8 years. They died from lack of interest. Every day there is a Bracketed RR Teams (with top bracket a Swiss open to all comers) an Open Pairs and a GR Pairs, plus most days a 1 ...
"Playing Up" - An open letter to Jay Whipple
I don't get all this discussion that claims 'The rules say there must be exactly 8 teams in each bracket'. This is obviously not true, as it will cause you to turn teams away 7/8 of the times because the brackets don't come out even. In fact ...
"Playing Up" - An open letter to Jay Whipple
Blaming the ACBL for this is incorrect. CoC for regionals are set by the District, not the ACBL. Just played in the NYC regional this past week. They have top bracket open to all and run as a Swiss if more than 8 teams. Same with the bottom bracket. All ...
Josh Mullins's bidding problem: K96 A AT9652 Q83
Doublers: What is your thinking? You know partner doesn't have enough to act, and that partner is most likely to bid 4 or 4 in response to double. Playing a 10 trick contract in a 4-3 fit and only 23 or so HCP between you doesn't ...
One Glaring Example of ACBL's Bloated Bureaucracy
The real problem, IMO, is not the size of the Bod so much as it is that they do not comprehend and accept the role of a BoD. Bod should only perform the tasks of hiring / firing of officers and setting of mission, not of running the organization. Curren BoD ...
Another Serious3N evaluation
Partner showed extras, but you do not. For you to bid serious 3NT you need to have enough that slam is almost assured and a grand is a possibility. Not this hand. Show partner your club king and see how things go from there.
Bidding systems without forcing opening bid
Seems to me this might work really well for match points, less well for IMPs. Why? Because at match points you care about frquency of good results not mmagnitude. Given that - you get a strong forcing hand (2C in 2/1) maybe once every two sessions on average - Perhaps 1 ...
How to Attract Youth Players?
Unfortunately you really CAN'T teach someone to play bridge in an hour, even badly, unless you consider only card play without bidding to be playing bridge. And you certainly can teach someone everything there is about the mechanics of chess in 15-30 minutes. You can also teach anyone to ...
